Steve Hackett – Premonitions: The Charisma Years (1975-1983)


Article by:

Universal Music Group has announced a 14-Disc-Boxset of Steve Hackett which will cover his time with Charisma Records between 1975-83, called Premonitions: The Charisma Years.

Included are the first six Steve Hackett albums, from Voyage of the Acolyte to Highly Strung. Steven Wilson has done new 5.1 mixes of the first four albums. Two of these new mixes (Please Don’t Touch and Spectral Mornings) are mixed into discrete surround sound from the multi-tracks, but the multi-track tapes for the other two albums (Voyage of the Acolyte and Defector) could not be located. These albums were up-mixed from the stereo masters.

In addition, there are two CDs with new stereo mixes (Please Don’t Touch and Spectral Mornings). These have been made since new mixes have been created from the multi-tracks anyway. New stereo mixes for Cured and Highly Strung have not been made, since the multi-tracks are unavailable.

This box set will also include various live recordings: The Oxford show in it’s entirety over two CDs, both Reading 1981 and Drury Lane 1979, as well as the BBC session from 1983. And there will be a booklet with extensive liner notes and photographs.
